Every participant was given a separate exhibit space and several minutes for self-presentation. Except for a number of video plots, printed and souvenir products the organizers of Mining Road Project prepared a large stand of the new tourist route showing each of its numerous sites-stops and the brand-name case with samples of stones and minerals collected in Karelia. The visitors of the exhibition regarded with curiosity “iron men” and studied the geological collection – anyone who visits all the sightseeing attractions of the route combining the cities of Petrozavodsk and Outokumpu can collect such one. For a good reason the experienced geologists and at the same time the Secretary of the Project, Andrey Ivanov, was next to the stand.

In full concordance with the recommendations of “Karelia” ENPI CBC Program about informing targeted audience about the results of the project (“if you have nothing to say about your project by the moment its completion, the project has failed”), instead of five minutes allowed for report the Coordinator of Mining Road Project, Vitaly Shekov, spoke fifteen minutes. For shorter period of time he simply could not have mentioned all the achievements and breakthroughs made for the last three years. And he started by noting the contribution of the whole project team into the common business. According to his opinion the main victory of Mining Road has become the fact itself that some tens of enthusiasts-associates have joined together under the slogan of the project. “They are ready to work even for free – Vitaly Alexandrovich smiled, - but we will try to get financing to realize our ideas.”
